Hitting To All Fields: Bigger Blowout – Duke Over UNC Or Deadspin.com Over Panthers Owner Jerry Richardson?
What was the bigger blow-out: Duke over North Carolina in Chapel Hill or Deadspin.com’s exposé of Panthers’ owner Jerry Richardson?
Hitting To All Fields: Dennis Rodman A Political Ambassador; March Is About To Get MAD In The ACC; & Could Bobcats Season Get Worse?
Dennis Rodman as a politcial ambassador for peace talking to George Stephanopoulos would have been like the Kardashian sisters speaking to the late Mother Teresa about celibacy.
Why was Mike Krzyzewski so mad at the Virginia fans for storming the court? Coach K. probably should have been upset with Rasheed Sulaimon for shooting 2 of 10 for the game. Now, court storming is the latest hot button, water cooler Topic for latest news cycle. What’s next: lack of male cheerleaders?
Hitting To All Fields: Heels Make “STATE”ment To Wolfpack, Wake Upsets #2 Miami, Danica Lives Up To Daytona Hype
Epic win for UNC over N.C. State in Chapel Hill…The Dean Dome crowd was rocking big time for the Heels 76-65 “STATE”ment over the Pack. Hats off to Reggie Bullock who was on fire, hitting 5 out of 12 from three point range with 22 points and 13 rebounds. Freshman Marcus Paige outplayed one of the best point guards in America: Lorenzo Brown with eight assists and ZERO turnovers…the highly touted McDonald’s All-American finally played as advertised coming out of Marion, Iowa.
Greetings and salutations, it’s time once again to go “Hitting To All Fields”.
Here we go again, Red Sox vs.Yankees; Celtics vs. Lakers; Rolls Royce vs. Bentley; BMW vs. Mercedes; Auburn vs. Alabama; Paris Hilton vs. intelligence; Brooke Hogan vs. talent; Rosie O’Donnell vs. Weight Watchers; Charlie Sheen vs. sanity and the rest of the world. You get the picture, right? To quote the Hall of Fame Ambassador of College Basketball Dick Vitale: “It’s DUKE vs. CAROLINA BABY! ARE YOU SERIOUS?”
Only in “Bizarro World” would the University of Miami basketball team destroy #1 Duke 90-63. That’s exactly what happened. Coach K. Better fix it ASAP because conference schedule has just begun. The NCAA should investigate Miami for violating Duke the way they did.
